Today I've got two of my own o{pin}ions for you.  One is food and one is not.

Let's start with food.

Honey Chicken

NOTE:  the person I pinned this from had most of the recipe in the description box of the pin.  When I clicked on the link, it takes you to a recipe website, but I couldn't find this exact recipe on their site.  So, I went with the part of the recipe I could read and did what I thought for the rest.

My o{pin}ion.... This is a pretty good recipe.  Most of the family liked it, hubby was impressed with how tender the meat was, and with a few changes (less pepper, salt and paprika as noted in original pin) I will absolutely make it again!
Here's my version of the original recipe (with changes) You take 8 chicken strips, then "bread" them with a mixture of 1/2 cup flour, 1 Tablespoons of  each black pepper, salt, and paprika. Place into a 9x9 baking dish and bake for 10 minutes at 400.  While baking, make the sauce.  To do this you mix together:  1/3 cup lemon juice, 1/2 stick of melted butter,  3 Tbsp. Bbq Sauce, and  1/2 cup honey  After chicken has cooked for 10 mins, pour sauce over chicken and continue baking until chicken is cooked through ~ maybe 10 more minutes.  Serve and enjoy!

** Now on to a Pinned "tip".  I came across this pin the other day and knew instantly I would be trying it. **

Make Nail Polish on Nails Last Longer

I was instantly intrigued with this pin, not for myself, but for my girls.  Sassy and Smiley always want me to paint their nails, but it always seems to chip off by day's end.  My fingers were crossed that this would at least help.  My verdict.  Smileys nails were chipping hours later ~ typical for this little 4 year old and Sassy's.... 24 hours later it was already wearing off in spots.  So my o{pin}ion is that this tip doesn't work, but I tested it on kids so maybe it would work better for an adult.  I however, don't like my nails painted, so I won't be trying it on myself.  

Pinned anything good lately ~ or have you tried anything that you've pinned? 
I'd love to hear from you!

I totally love these posts you're doing. I love that half the time the stuff you make from pintrist doesn't work or come out - not that I enjoy your hard work not turning out! But I love your honesty and how you spare the rest of us from trying the same thing!!! That chicken looks amazing!
